Tails of the World books


Each year, pet photographers from around the world unite to raise funds for animal rescue. To date, the annual Tails of the World books have featured over 1150 dogs and raised over $95,000.


In 2024, our goal is to raise $70,000 with Tails of the World: Volume III.

About the Charities

National Mill Dog Rescue logo

The National Mill Dog Rescue (NMDR) was established in February 2007, in honor of a forgiving little Italian Greyhound named Lily, rescued by NMDR's founder, Theresa Strader. Determined that her years of suffering would not be in vain, NMDR now gives a voice to discarded breeding dogs across the country.
